This is an ideal snack for the school going kids...and also, we, adults, when we have a craving to nibble  something in the evenings........
This is really really a healthy laddoo, with very minimal cooking involved, and no jaggery or sugar has been used here.  The natural sweetness of dates, raisins, apricots and figs are more than enough for this.This can be quickly whipped up as any Festival offering also.
 The natural stickiness of the dates is enough for the formation of laddoos.
My niece brought home lot of dry fruits, and thought of making this. Recipe source is Tarla Dalal (with some modifications)

 Seedless dates - 2 tbsp
Almonds - 2 tbsp
Pistachios - 2 tbsp

Notes
* Take care to buy seedless but sticky variety  of dates. Do not buy the very dry kind of dates.
*You can add walnuts too.
*For extra flavor, a teaspoon of white sesame seeds can be dry roasted and added too.
* Has a shelf life of a week to ten days in room temperature. If you are going to keep it for a longer time, it is ideal to refrigerate, but the keep the required number of laddoos out of the fridge an hour before.
